mint & watercress

Mint flourishes so abundantly. One little plant tucked into the soil near a drippy outdoor faucet grows quickly and so fragrantly.

A children's book of the past, 'The Bobbsey Twins Go to the Country', refers to watercress growing near a pond on a farm. Bert, Nan, Flossie and Freddie gather watercress leaves and eat watercress sandwiches for lunch. When I read the story, I wondered how that would taste. Half a century has passed, and I have yet to find a watercress sandwich.
